Fallback and Redundancy

Vantage on AWS leverages the Fallback feature to ensure that data is duplicated across nodes, protecting against the loss of data in the event of an EC2 instance failure. Vantage uses Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) for persistent storage, ensuring data safety even if the attached instance fails. EBS is automatically replicated within an AWS Availability Zone (AZ). This provides redundancy like RAID mirroring in on-premises deployments. When using EBS storage, the data disks are encrypted by default; it is also possible to encrypt the root drive.

Node Failure Recovery

Vantage on AWS includes Node Failure Recovery, which automatically detects a failed EC2 instance without administrative involvement and will substitute a newly-provisioned replacement node. Because storage is provided by EBS, it is separate from the nodes and persists even when an instance fails. The EBS volumes are automatically detached from the failed node and attached to the newly-provisioned instance, which avoids data loss. If desired, hot standby nodes are available for Vantage on AWS.
